Batesville Day & 10K Race, May 16, 2015


Batesville Daya tradition since 1976.

The 40th Annual Batesville Day, presented by members of the greater Batesville community, includes the Commonwealth’s most famous 10race  (8 am);  an exciting parade (11 am); a village fair (12 noon) with food by local providers - and music by the Central Virginia Blues Society featuring Batesville’s own Bluzonia.

Register for the parade and fair here.

Highlights of Batesville Day 2014.

The small but mighty parade with fire trucks, the rescue squad, bikes, antique cars, the tractor and the grandkids, the be-hind of a rhinoceros, and

The community fair in the field with good food, free books for kids donated by Friends of the JMRL, plants, community activities, and Help for Haiti. Special thanks to the Western Albemarle Art Class and Olivia Battani for the 2014 T-Shirt design.
